Telefónica, Tech Mahindra and others join Hyperledger blockchain project

Fri, 22 Nov 2019, 04:52 am UTC

Open-source collaborative blockchain project Hyperledger has announced the addition of eight new members to its cohort.

According to an official release, the latest general members joining the consortium are BlocWatch, BondEvalue, Ledger Leopard, LimeChain, Telefónica, Tech Mahindra and Vonechain Technology. Associate members joining this month include ETC Cooperative.

In addition to the new members, Hyperledger also announced a host of project news, including the introduction of Hyperledger Avalon, the release of Hyperledger Sawtooth 1.2 and Sawtooth PBFT 1.0 and updates to Hyperledger Quilt and Hyperledger Burrow.

Earlier this month, Hyperledger launched the Hyperledger Certified Service Provider (HCSP) program with five initial members – Accenture, Ant Financial, Beijing PeerSafe Technology Co., Chainyard and IBM. The program will offer training and professional certification to service providers to ensure that they are well equipped to install, configure, operate, manage and troubleshoot networks built on Hyperledger distributed ledger technologies (DLTs).

"The fourth quarter has been busy on many fronts," said Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director, Hyperledger. "We've hit the 15 project milestone with the introduction of Hyperledger Avalon, and are seeing growing development and traction across our other projects. We have also launched our Hyperledger Certified Service Provider program to boost deployment speed and efficiency for enterprises. Now, this diverse line-up of new members adds even more depth and breadth to our community and momentum to our efforts to advance the state of enterprise blockchain technologies."

Among the latest members, fintech startup BondEvalue was recently approved by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) to test blockchain-based bond trading platform in its Sandbox Express.

Founded in 2015, Hyperledger is a collaborative effort that aims to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. It allows organizations to create robust, industry-specific applications, platforms and hardware systems to support their individual business transactions by offering enterprise-grade, open-source distributed ledger frameworks and code bases.
